COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Biere de Miel is bottle conditioned and contains only water, barley and wheat, honey, hops and yeast. It has a marvelously delicate scent of honey, balnaced by a dry palate, resulting in a beer that is both estery and refreshing.

Disclaimer: Both the normal and the organic (biologique) version.

Bottle from Super Saver. Hazy golden pour with 3-finger off-white head. Aroma of grainy malt, hopcitrus, some lemongrass. The flavor is funky malty, with a big honey and citrus flavor.

Habanero (3263) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2006
Bottle: Pours misty golden with an off- white head that is short lasting. The aroma is of flowerish honey and hay . The flavour is of honey, weak malt and citrus fruit. Light to medium bodied. Slightly sweet and bitter finish.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 18, 2006
Bottle from Santa, and a surprise vintage - 2002 - only seen on the inside of the cork. Rating from memory (of 2 hours ago), so this may not be too detailed. Nice estery fruit aroma, spicy and unsurprisingly reminiscent of regular Dupont. Itís that same chewy yeast that is most prevalent. The honey is noticable but subtle in the flavor and imparts a gentle sweetness to the beer. A pretty strong alcoholic kick with this one.

dwyerpg (4871) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 2, 2006
A little faint aroma. Looks good. The head is a little too poofy or puffy. The taste is quite nice though. The honey is definitely there but itís smooth and not too much; subtly great, like a saison should be.

Very nice subtle honey to this saison. Yet another reason to drink saisons during this time of year, please, please, let more brewers in American stop with the american wheats for their summer offerings and try to do a decent saison. Dupont is a hell of a reference point.

piscator34 (2128) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 20, 2006
Gold in colour with lots of carbonation. Aromas of horseblanket, lemon, grassy hops, marshmallow, and white wine. Peppery flavors mix well with notes of toasted marhsmallow, light malt, and grape leaves. Very dry on the palate with no alcohol burn. A very refreshing and complex beer. Similar to the regular Dupont saison, but with more compexity.

jasonp (1556) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - JUN 15, 2006
Pours clear golden with a white head which slowly fades. Aroma of hay, a bouquet of flowers and ends with a surprising minty/menthol twinge; neat. Flavor has notes of sweet pale malt, lemon, orange, white grapes, honey, clove, flowers and spiciness. Pleasantly sweet with a zesty hop bitterness at the end. Alcohol very well-hidden, dry finish. Medium bodied with spritzy carbonation. Quite good!

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Bottle 48F Tulip Glass. Aroma is sharp, very aspartic, could smell it the minute the cork popped, thought I opened a heineken. As I smell further I smell esters of yeast, yet no bread, and slightly dry. Light gold color with a rather large head, that diminishes rather quickly and is white. Taste is very intriguing, very drying finish, very light taste, slightly sour at the end with only a touch of bitterness. Wildness is someting I taste, as though the ingredients are of the earth, but not rustic, taste is very controlled. Controlled nature, taste of berries and flowers, really something else. You need 750 ml to figure this beer out. I think it may be slightly light struck, but still the idea is there. Woody in nature. That is the word for this beer it is nature incarnate. What a dry finsih. Full of carbonation, good mouthfeel, very nice not sweet at all. really good. once again the belgians show off their alligence with god.
